Chen Guangbiao Plans to Sell Fresh Air in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou, 4-5 Yuan Per Can
Chen Guangbiao’s explains that the main inventor of this canned fresh air is himself and that there is a computer microchip within each pull-top can. While filling the can with air, the operator need only swing his hand three times, and when the air is swung into the can reaches the required target, the computer chip reacts and automatically seals the can, with the oxygen within each can being equivalent to 5 oxygen tanks in the hospital, similar to compressed biscuits [hardtack].
As for the market prospects of canned fresh air, Chen Guangbiao is very optimistic. He says: “We inhale car exhaust every day, but now we are bringing fresh air from unpolluted cities to sell. It’s good for people’s health and prolongs life.”
Comments from Sina:
Chen Guangbiao, you should really learn more about lead-acid batteries before coming out to put on this kind of show! Lead-acid batteries doesn’t affect the environment, what affects the environment is because we don’t have a robust manufacturing and recycling system! You’re too lacking in technical knowledge!
Electric scooters, the most practical form of transportation for the ordinary common people, why did you smash them?
Well done!! Let those stupid high officials see how terribly they have ruined China’s environment!
新浪广东江门SINGLE3100: (responding to above)
It shows that China’s environment has been so terribly polluted that has reached the point where it jeopardizes human survival!
It [this publicity stunt] is a warning, a mockery/satire!!!
If you were serious, you’d smash a BMW or Mercedes Benz! They cause much more pollution than electric mopeds. Talk about snobbery.
Dumb-ass Chen is rather naive.
This is the kind of people China has the most of, buffoons who jump around, no doubt about it.
The air belongs to the nation, hurry and accuse him of embezzling state-owned property.
This guy’s publicity stunt truly lacks sophistication/substance!
Car exhaust is even more pollution, how come you don’t go smash cars? Only smashing the ordinary common people’s little electric scooters, is your brain broken?
Do more practical things, less vulgar sensationalism.
I’ve seen too much [of his publicity stunts], Chen Guangbao makes me sick.
A mutated society will inevitably produce abnormal things.
This kind of person really doesn’t get tired of doing things like this.
Fuck… why not sell farts???
Purely a publicity stunt, can fresh air still be fresh once be contained in a can? What can you accomplish waving a hammer in photos like this? Causing pollution!! One doesn’t need to create a stir to do good things, you’ve ruined your good image by overdoing it!!
Taking the chance to make another fortune!

Are you stupid or just uneducated? Too much pure oxygen is harmful for the body.
What’s the point in reporting something like this! Chen Guangbiao is boring, so is the reporter of this news.
